If you are talking all hunting, has to be the shotgun. I use it duck hunting, turkey hunting and squirrel hunting. The bow is my #1 for target shooting but I use it probably second since the season is so much longer than muzzleloader and gun for deer.

I will rephrase my answer. The Poll asks what weapon do you use the most. I answered 22 rimfire, as it's the weapon I use most, between just blasting ammo and squirrel hunting. The question in the original posters first post is what DEER weapon do you use the most. For that, it's the rifle.

The pen is mightier than the sword I use a .22 more than any other weapon unless you include target practice, in which case I'd hafta say; my bow!

I shoot a 22 rimfire far more than any of the other firearms that I own. Can't beat 550 rounds for ~$10.

Shotgun for sure!!! Between thumping some ducks, bricking on doves, putting the smackdown on turkeys, and shooting skeet my shotguns get shot to death.

Use rifle more. Deer hunt more than anything else. Turkey hunt with shotgun but season not as long so would have to be rifle .... Bow hunt too, but don't get to shoot at as many

I'm guilty of not reading the question correctly also. For deer hunting I probably use a rifle the most.
